Re-Creating South Pole Scotch Whisky

I first mentioned this subject back in 2009 when the whisky was first discovered in the 1907 hut built by Ernest Shackleton's Antarctic expedition; a couple of cases of the whisky had been left behind when the expedition failed to achieve its goal, and the whisky remained there for most of a century.

Now it has been re-created using the latest technology, and is available for sale (a quick search indicates that the stuff is priced in the $125-150 range).
